In this episode of the podcast, Karri and Henrik join forces
with director Nick Vaky and
photographer Luke Liu from the
Youtube channel Mint Volcano to discuss
Taiwanese New Wave cinema. The quartet takes a close look at four
distinct films across the timeline of the New Wave 'movement' from
two key directors - Hou Hsiao-hsien and Edward Yang. The themes of
history, sociopolitical issues, heartfelt memories and dark humor
coalesce into an engaging long-form discussion.
